How do you turn words on a page into a vivid, mesmerizing piece of performance?
What do you do when the play is so strange and complex that you do not know where to start?
And how about when the play itself is not written…? When it is just the germ of an idea, not fully expressed yet?
My guest today is a director and producer whose approach to theatre-making is inclusive: Tonje Wik Olaussen tells you how she invites actors, writers and more into the creative process and stays true to her vision as a director.

Tonje kindly shared some of her favorite books with me, which are now definitely in my reading list:
- The Girls – Emma Cline
- The Year – Thomas Espedal
- And for directors especially: The Director’s Craft – Katie Mitchell
I hope you enjoy the interview and I see you in the next video 🙂
